Two men appeared briefly in the Wynberg Regional Court in Cape Town today in connection with the murder of tourist, Anni Dewani.

One of them has been positively identified as 31-year-old Zola Tongo, who was the driver of the vehicle in which Dewani was found murdered last week. Police said she had a bullet wound to the neck.

The other is 25-year-old Mziwamadoda Qwabe, SABC reported.

The two men are facing charges of robbery, murder and hi-jacking. Their case has been postponed until Monday next week for further investigation.

A third person, 23-year-old Xolile Mmgeni is due back in court on Thursday.

The police would not comment on reports that 28-year-old Dewani’s husband, Shrien (31) would return to South Africa for an identity parade.
